About Grin

Electronic transactions for all. Without censorship or restrictions.

Grin is a private and lightweight implementation of the mimblewimble blockchain. Launched on January 15, 2019, Grin strives for scalability, openness, fair distribution, and privacy by default.

Grin empowers anyone to transact or save modern money without the fear of external control or oppression. Grin is designed for the decades to come, not just tomorrow. Grin wants to be usable by everyone, regardless of borders, culture, skills or access.

Grin's Proof-of-Work consists of two sets of algorithms, one ASIC-resistant and one ASIC-friendly. Over time, the ASIC-friendly algorithms phase in, reaching 100% of the block reward by January 2021. Grin's first ASIC-friendly algorithm is Cuckatoo31+, which should maintain dominance until approximately April 2020.
